UKVI + Regular IELTs


Hi everyone! My UKVI IELTS will expire on August this year. The score I got in Writing was only 6.0, the rest were 7 and/or above. Last October, I took another exam but instead of taking the UKVI, I took regular IELTS. This time, I got 6.5 in Writing and 7 and above for the other bands. I understand that the NMC is now flexible with scores, so they now allow 2 sittings with a minimum score of 6.5 on any bands taken within 6 months. My plan is to sit for another exam this March. Should I go for UKVI? Or would regular IELTS do? I'm not sure if this has been asked before but could someone please enlighten me or give me the link to the related post? I'd be really thankful.
